A great Skimmer

This skimmer is a great unit, that works well. Took a few days to break in, and it was pulling all sorts of sludge out of the system. Skimmer seems well built. It would have been great if the pump was screwed into the base rather than just be held by pressure when assembled. A DC pump would make this skimmer that much better. For what it is, this skimmer functions well and does the job. Could use a few improvements but it works.

Great skimmer at a good price!

Love this skimmer! The installation/setup was a breeze and dialing it in didn't take to long either. I actually bought it when it first came out and no complaints yet. I'm running the 202s on a 100 gallon setup and skimmate is very dark which i love! On top of it all it's very attractive... Don't have any cons as of yet but will update if any.

Sweet Skimmer

The unit is very easy to put together. Instructions are somewhat lacking but if you understand how the unit works you shouldn't have any issues. In terms of functionality it began working right away. No waiting for the head to establish inside the chamber. In terms of fluid flow this unit has a great design, one that cannot be replicated from cheap alternatives (as I have found in the past). The footprint is very reasonable and the unit is very stable. I have it sitting on top of a tupperware due to my sump water level height and the vibrations from the pump are very minimal.
